I recently moved into a home with a ***** garage door opener, and have zero documentation with it. Today the chain popped off, and I had to put it back on the sprocket - however....
It seems that when the chain jumped, the door closed (and dragged the chain with it) about a foot or so.

So here is my delima... I need to tell this garage door opener, to release the chain about a foot to grab the door and make it open and close normally again. As it sits right now, when I close it, it stops about a foot off the ground. I had to release the door for tonight to secure the garage - but would like to know if anyone has any instruction on how to fix this problem.

ANY help is GREATLY appreciated.

Eric.

You could remove the chain from the sprocket, raise the door one foot, let it sit on blocks while you reinstall the chain. Then it should be about right. Some additional adjustment will probably be necessary.
That said, I agree with the previous post that this door and opener need maintenance.
If you're handy, adjust the chain tension, lube the rollers and chain, and generally make sure it all works smoothly.
If you're uncomfortable with all that, call a pro.
